good thing i have a job ;)


As some of you know, I have a job that has me up at insanely early hours (3:20am early). It is a serious wedge in my creativity, as by the end of the shift, I am physically and mentally exhausted.


As of July 3rd, I will no longer have the 3:20am rises. I reduced my shifts at one job and took on a second (with far more reasonable hours), so as to give myself better working hours for Voice Work (and YouTube Videos) and to give myself CONSIDERABLY less stress.

I have always been more creative at night, so I am very excited about this development. I look forward to being able to put more energy into my various productions.

This also means I will be able to start a Patreon and open Voice Commissions, so hooray!

So, yes! Good things ahead! Less early mornings, more creative nights!

Codot has begun the PUSH TO GREATNESS!

when you were... younger? was it difficult to make an accurate form? did you have to shift some things as time progressed? i think im doing a good job, but sometimes i don't know

It was difficult so difficult for the first long while and I ’ m still changing now . I ’ m still learning and discovering about the world and myself and I do not think I will stop any time soon .

I think June was maybe meant to test my determination, dedication, and resilience. So many things I have tried, have gone wrong. I have had to start over more days then I have had to just continue habits.

Then it hit me, fitness journey’s aren’t always going to be easy, or pretty, or pleasing. Sometimes they are gross, sweaty, sticky, bloody, & painful.

Sometimes you cruse through dropping lbs and crushing PR’s, sometimes you fail to do the thing, or eat the way, or sometimes you get injured.

When I think about it there isn’t one good thing in my life that I haven’t had to fight tooth and nail for. I have had to restart art 100’s times, change jobs loads of times, move cities loads of times, but every time I fought through the bullshit road blocks in my way I came out the other end, better/happier for it.

I will not let my brain win, I will not let it convince me that I don’t deserve health, cause it sure as hell is trying.

I’ve fallen down 7 times already, this is the part where I stand up 8

anonymous asked:

have you ever been to a tea party with a bunch of nut jobs, it's a really lively event.

“Good stranger, I have been attending tea parties with high nobility since early adolescence. Many nobles take to calling the common folk things like ‘low borns’ or ‘simpletons’, but several of those very same people are battier than a heap of guano.”

“The Duke of House Claive is a pompous oaf who ends nearly every sentence with ‘gods above’. A young lord of House Fullton enjoys stirring a few spoonfuls of salt into his tea. The second heiress to House Brandywine has a glass eye that she claims allows her to see into the future… which is nonsense, as she once ‘predicted’ that Lord Chrom’s firstborn would be a boy named ‘Buckley’. And please do not get me started on any of the times Lady Lissa has asked me to accompany her to tea with Maribelle… suffice to say, she once threatened to malice me with her parasol if I ever harmed milady in any way, shape, or form… the very nerve.”
“What I am getting at, good stranger, is that I do not believe I could share tea with stranger company than I already have unless Grima was to invite me over to enjoy a cup of tea and scones with General Orson of Renais and Nergal of the Black Fang… Heavens, what an uncomfortable tea party that would be.“

I'm going to step in as someone who loathes the Marauders, and say that Remus and Peter had the greatest possibilities of being cinnamon rolls out of that group. Remus is canine european, so he is automatically nicer than a human. Also, Peter could have been nice, but nobody likes Peter.

uhhhhhhh i disagree

like remus is probably a good person and i like teenage!remus better than i like teenage!sirius. and he does have his reasons, but he never steps in to stop james or sirius when they’re being dicks to snape, even when he’s in a position where it’s literally his job to do so. like it’s one thing when he’s just a normal student and it’s his friends, but as a prefect it’s super irresponsible of him to just let that shit slide, especially since it’s happening right in front of his face?????

same goes for teenage!peter - he doesn’t step in either and he has even less of a reason than remus to not do so. and he seems to take delight in snape’s treatment too??? which is gross. 

but mostly my point is that NONE of them are cinnamon rolls because they all have flaws/weaknesses that negate the kind of ~perfection associated with the cinnamon roll meme. they’re all kind of dicks, to be honest. 

I may be missing vidcon even though i live like 15 minutes from the anaheim convention center and bought a pass months ago but w/e because i had to go stay at a farm in missouri for a family thing, BUT at least i just got the good news that i’m hired for the job i interviewed for a week ago :D. (it’s a unionized job, too! which… like, isn’t the most common thing for entry level jobs in america lol. so i have guaranteed hours, better worker protection, and higher starting pay. there are downsides to unions of course - they’re way better for employees with seniority and there’s union dues and probably other downsides i dont really know about - but tbh i’m fucking thrilled)

this is such a boring, adult life type update on my life lol but i’m happy

Headcanons: How Jonathan Byers acts around his crush

Request: “All of your writing is so great! I always look forward to your posts. You do such a good job of being true to the characters and their personalities! ❤️ Could you do a headcanon for how Jonathan from Stranger Things would treat you if he had a crush on you? 😍”
Author’s Note: My first Stranger Things request!! Thanks for bein’ such a darn sweetie, anon!

• This poor boy. He doesn’t just have a crush on you. He is head over heels in love. And he hasn’t the foggiest idea of how to handle it.

• Taking candids of you of course. That’s how he handles it.

• They are the most artsy beautiful photos ever taken of you. Too bad you don’t get to see them until you marry him lmao

• He is so shy but he goes out of his way to be nice. Considering the two of you already talk, he can at least try to make this look casual.

• His version of kindness is making sure you have everything you need in subtle ways.

• Your work lets you out later than he is comfortable with you being out: “Hey, Y/N, need a lift?”
He isn’t sure you’re eating enough: “Would you like me to… uh… Make you dinner?”
If you look tired in class: “Nap, I will take down notes for you.”

• He actually smiles a lot around you and will actually chuckle at your jokes.

• The first time you hugged him played on his mind for like a week. He thinks about how warm you were, how nice you smelt. Everything.

• Now he wants to hug you forever, congrats.

• He will show you his music, if you like it - expect mixtapes.

• He was mind-blown when you kissed him on the cheek and told him how sweet he was. 

• He will mistake your flirty actions/remarks for kindness because the idea of you liking him is just too unrealistic for him.

• It will probably end in you getting so frustrated that you back him into a wall or straddle him on a chair and grab the collar of his jacket and just beg him to kiss you.

• Which he does. Then he nervously asks if this means you want to date him. Expect any confessions of feelings to be quiet and shy. He is precious.


“I’ve learned things about myself that I never thought I was capable of, things that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I’m such a yes-person that I had to learn how to say no when it needs to be said. I have learned about collaborating and being a leader. I’d never thought about that part of the job. I was just excited to play Kara, I didn’t realize everything that came with it. I think it was good to go into this situation with that kind of naiveté, because I really have grown as a woman, and I am so proud of this past season.” - Melissa Benoist

good morning!!!

today is my first day off with no commitments in awhile, so t and i were going to spend the entire day hiking or going to the beach or something, especially since he’s been doing these side jobs and i’ve barely seen him in the last couple weeks. then he gets a call at 6 am to see if he can come in for work… it was for 6-2, we said no, then he gets fomo and i told him to go in for a few hours haha. so now i’m enjoying the early morning sunshine on the deck with coffee.

When I got my CIG, they sent me a little pin which has since found its home on my aquarium fleece. I have half a mind to try enchanting it or doing something to it for positive job-related things.

I mean, I already feel like wearing it kicks me into overdrive. Maybe this would be a good thing to add some woo to.

Root, Shaw and Kara Danvers for the lab partner/ elevator / McDonalds ask :)

• get randomly assigned as your lab partner for a whole semester

root. because listen. labs are boring & i could ace them in my sleep. someone’s gotta help me make things a little more interesting

• get trapped with on a broken elevator for ten hours

kara, and i’m fully aware she can’t get us out of the elevator and we have to stay there for the whole time, but tbh i think we’d have a Good Time

• get as my employee trainer for my new job at McDonalds

i think shaw & i have similar sensibilities when it comes to Doing The Work, she’d get straight to the point and tell me what i needed to do

If I start commissions on only coloring what the buyer requests and sends me to color, would anyone be interested in buying? and how much should I charge?

I ask this because I had a harsh reminder that I need to earn some kind of income and I am unable to get a job. I am terrible at drawing because it causes me to break down easily, but I am good at coloring. (as seen here x and here x) Coloring seems to be the only thing I am good at right now.

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

Dr Maru’s notes, translated

As an Assyriologist-in-training, I was pretty excited about cuneiform’s little cameo in Wonder Woman- there are no films at all about Mesopotamia, so even three seconds of flipping through a notebook of the languages I study was pretty exciting to see on the big screen. Now, I assumed at first that the writing in Dr Maru’s notebook, would simply be gibberish, but one thing about it stuck with me: how well copied the letters were. Now, Cuneiform writing was designed for clay and stylus, and it is BRUTALLY hard to write cuneiform symbols with pen and paper. You’d think you could just draw a bunch of triangles, but nope; the system was so clearly designed to use nuances only possible with stylus and clay, they’re nigh on impossible to accurately reproduce using pen. And whoever wrote that piece of paper did a damn good job of it. So, I remained convinced the text might actually have some meaning, and when I got home I started tinkering with it.

First things first: though the notes were described in the film as “Sumerian and Ottoman”, they’re not Sumerian. Dr Maru’s notes are very clearly written in the quite distinctive script of Neo-Assyrian Cuneiform, which was used on official inscriptions of the Assyrian Empire from around 1000- 700 BC. Sumerian died out as a spoken language in around 2000 BC and though it continued to be used in writing long after that in the same way Latin was in Europe, it was probably never written in the formal Assyrian script.

I’m going to safely assume the man who mistakenly called the page “Sumerian and Ottoman” got it wrong, but the fact that Diana doesn’t correct this, despite her vastly superior knowledge of ancient languages is interesting. Consider this though: historians estimate the destruction of the site of Hissarlik, which is thought MIGHT be the inspiration for the Troy legends to around 1300 BC, around the time of the Bronze Age collapse and dawn of the Greek Dark Ages. If we take this as the end of the Greek Mythic age and the hiding of Themiscyra in the DC Universe, Diana would only have been able to study Cuneiform scripts written before this period so she would know only Old Babylonian Cursive, or possibly even only Old Babylonian Lapidary. Neo-Assyrian script would be just legible with effort, but difficult for her to read.

Now, the way cuneiform works is that any one cuneiform symbol can represent one or more alphabetic sounds, OR syllables, OR entire words. Most stand for a number of those things, but some represent only one. The symbols that represent entire words are called Logograms, and they remained largely consistent through all the changes of the cuneiform writing system. If Dr Maru’s notes were primarily written in Logograms (which they turned out to be), it would make sense for Diana to still be able to read them despite the considerable changes between Old Babylonian Lapidary and Neo-Assyrian script, and also that she wouldn’t have to know Assyrian-era Akkadian to understand the logographic signs (because they represent whole words at once rather than spell them out alphabetically, they can be understood by speakers of multiple languages who know the signs).

So having sorted all that out, I began to translate. Virtually all the symbols were logograms standing for words like mountain, woman, king, builder etc, but a limited few stood for single syllables like “ru” or “ti”. This made no sense, because the signs used were consistent enough with the actual context in the film to make some sense and logically repetitive. Whoever wrote this knew what they were doing. Why intersperse them with random letters? I finally realised: Dr Maru is a chemist. The way her code works is that she uses mostly logograms, but uses signs for syllables when those syllables are our modern symbols for chemical elements. Every sign where a syllable-only translation was my only option, that syllable matched up with the abbreviation for a chemical element in the periodic table.

So, working with the assumption that Dr Poison’s code technique is using Logograms to represent whole words, and the symbols for sole syllables like ka, ga, la etc in their standard transcriptions from cuneiform to represent chemical elements, here it is at last, the first page of Dr Maru’s notebook:


To divide the town, one unit of the weapon to the throne of the builder: to please the builder, in the company of the god: lithium, 1 grain/seed of europium. 1 daughter of gold woman -  yours. Country [given?] to god and then [to] lord/god/king. Ruthenium possibility, carbon disulfide*, and then rhenium. May it be pleasing to the country. Animal shoulder** Uunhexium*** . Lord/god and then gallium, and then radium. Weapon, iodine, administrator.

*This sign can mean “tree, wood” or, just stand for the sound “s”. So, i was left with a choice between carbon and sulfur, and settled on the compound

**I have no fricking idea why that’s in there, but it’s definitely that sign. Maybe she wants to make a pot roast and scribbled it down? Someone draw me happy dr maru and her pot roast pls

***This sign was VERY hard to identify, but i finally settled on the Old Babylonian Lapidary sign for “uuh”. Uuh also happens to be the chemical symbol for Ununhexium or Livermorium, a rare earth element not identified until the year 2000. This is strange, because this sign is CLEARLY Lapidary, while all the others are in the Neo-Assyrian script. So my conclusion is that Dr Poison isolated Uunhexium 92 years ahead of the game, it’s her big secret, and decided it needed a unique Logogram of its own, for which she adopted the sign for Uuh.

transcript of the speech i gave at Vassar’s black baccalaureate service

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, honored guests, and the Vassar class of 2017.
Just saying that aloud made me feel old. Class of 2017? Most of y'all were born after dark-skinned Aunt Viv left the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. That’s wild.

I want to first thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment in your lives. I am honored, privileged, and a bit in disbelief that you asked me of all people to give this address. I try not to have feelings, and I’m going to do my best not to cry today, but no promises.

I’m here to stand in the gap between you and your parents and guardians and any other elders in your lives that you stopped listening to because you thought they were wack and out of touch. I remember being in your shoes not TOO long ago, and it is my fervent prayer that something that I say here today will help you avoid some of the mess I went through.
To be honest I’m a little nervous, but I figured there was no way could this be worse than when Betsy DeVos went down to Bethune-Cookman, so let’s get started.

As you transition to life after Vassar the changes will be both inevitable and swift, so I’d like to begin by giving you some well-intentioned advice and warning you about the continued process of becoming an adult.

Why yes, we should ring up every item.

I used to be a front end manager for a large hardware chain in the Midwest. It was early in the day (around 9 am or so) and my head cashier had called in sick so I was already behind in a lot of ways. Luckily I had a girl scheduled who was a former head cashier who had left the company and came back as a full time cashier. We’ll call her Jenny. Jenny was smart and worked hard, she was always professional and was quick with a joke. I liked when she was scheduled to work with me.

Jenny was around 7 months pregnant (and had the most awful things said to her because she didn’t have a ring on her left hand, but that’s another story) and I had given her the phone while I was trying to accomplish various tasks to set up my day.
